This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to talk about the disturbing state of politics. On the environment, the world’s major climate action conference had only minor action. South of the border, it looks likely that a kid who shot people will get off Scott free while a rightwing troublemaker looks like he might be finally paying the price.
